Bad Turbo

So after having some problems and cleaning the EGR valve well the truck still wasn't right so we checked the turbo and sure enough it is going. Any suggestions on installing a new one? Anything else to watch etc? Thanks.

Do you have an aftermarket air filter?

What was Wrong with the turbo?


I would suggest a turbo from Mad Turbo Werks

No on the aftermarket air filter. When we inspected the compressor wheel the shaft had a bunch of play and you could see where it has been rubbing. Loud whining/or whistling while driving and tons of white smoke. Still has plenty of power right now. Just don't want to cause other problems.

If it rubs, real bad! Those turbo's do have a bit of up and down, but should have no in and out play. Mad turbo is where I will go when the time comes.

Exactly!!

Many people get scammed by being told that side to side or up and down play is bad... Well IT"S NOT. that is normal unless it rubs badly on the side of the housing. When the turbo starts spinning, it finds it's own balance.


In and out play of the turbo blades is bad

Thanks I will check out the play before going any further and Mad Turbo Works looks good! Thinking EGR cooler or delete while we are at it.

If you run an upgraded EGR cooler, go with Bullet-proof diesel, for the deletes, they are all about the same.

For the turbo, I would really look at the cost benefits of the MTW Stage 1 if you are looking for a little more out of truck without needing much else. Or the Hybrid, if you want a bit of a step up - we are still waiting on feedback for the later. They are just starting to ship to the first batch of owners now.
